Another of my visits last week with @Chloe Explores was to this cottage and farm in a village in Kent.

So this place is very well hidden but, as I discovered yesterday, someone down the road still farms on the property (which explains where the sheep come from). The cottage is trashed, going by the amount of stuff piled up inside i guess the previous occupant was a hoarder and someone has obviously been in there and rummaged around creating mountains of stuff on the floor. Its that bad you cannot physically see the floor and need to pick your way across very carefully.

There are a few interesting things to see in there but the floor upstairs isn’t very trustworthy so i didn’t enter any rooms up there just stayed on the landing space.

A nice little explore, quiet and uninterrupted. I adored the sewing machines left outside to the elements and the photo slides that i’ve only been able to decipher one as someone holding a black dog, or cat. The garden offers much more, opening on to a field with old tractors, farm machinery, some old cars stripped of any worth and a battered old barn full of sheep.

The sheep are free roaming and not confined to the barn but whilst curious they were no bother and kept their distance.

History - none. i cannot find anything about the place other than property prices for the area. It’s really frustrating when i can’t find even the smallest bit of information as i love knowing about where i’ve been. if anyone does have any they could share that would be great.

Nice contrast with the b&w. Surprising how good a farm explore can be. Well done, nice photos :thumb

Give me a message when you find out anything else, The first time I actually went here ages ago we had an old lady car chase us because she apparently owned it. Would be interesting to see if it actually was her because we did doubt it because of how she was acting - seemed like a nosey neighbour more than an owner.

There could be a lot of history here as it is listed as part of the agricultural portions of the Eastwell Park Estate https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/7dc25497-defb-43e6-b75f-c4b87fbf1067

in 1560 the owner of Eastwell Manor died, leaving two daughters his coheirs, Catherine, married to Thomas Finch, gent. and Anne, married to Sir Thomas Kempe, of Wye, but this manor, with the advowson, had been settled on the former, on her marriage with Mr. Thomas Finch, who was afterwards knighted, and resided at Eastwell-place, It seems Anne and her husband were given the farm and cottages which became Kempes corner. Kempe is only mentioned once in https://www.british-history.ac.uk/survey-kent/vol7/pp398-412
